Description

Omega Centauri & PGC47003 and PGC46583 (?). Capture between sunset and 30 mins after moonrise. Clouds came through so only 27 of my 32 subs were usable. Some good subtle colours coming through of this magnificient object. If my location is correct, the dim galaxy in center on far left is PGC 47003 galaxy (140 million LY, visual mag 13.2) and there appears to be another to the right & above the Omega Centauri (PGC47340 at 150 million LY?, visual mag 13+?).

Thanks to Rod in the comments below for the option to have the advanced plate solve identify the pgc objects on-screen.
